THE SELF-MADE MAN: A FALLACY
We constantly hear about someone being referred to as a "self-made" whatever. You know where I'm going with this, right? There is NO SUCH THING as being self-made. I don't know about you, but I don't recall "making myself"; sorry, but the details are quite faint. Sometimes, we can get caught up in this "do-it-yourself" spirit because of pride. The Bible talks about how the apostle Paul had a "thorn in the flesh". It is not specific about what that was, but the point is clearly made. God used that to show Paul that, without Him, he could do nothing. There is nothing to be made without God's help. I wouldn't want to be a part of anything that didn't involve God. Something to think about.
